Jim Infantino

Jim Infantino grew up in the Manhattan of the 1970s and 80s. He studied Philosophy and became a busker on the streets of Cambridge and Boston. After a few years of coffeehouses and touring as a solo artist, he formed the band, Jim’s Big Ego. He has released 10 albums. He has been featured on many radio shows including NPR’s All Things Considered and The Doctor Demento Show. In 2012, shortly after the birth of his first child, Jim got the inspiration for a story too large to fit into song and began writing his first speculative fiction novel: The Wakeful Wanderer’s Guide to New New England & Beyond, which he then self-published. The novel has turned into a series under the name The Wakeful Wanderer’s Guide and Jim is now working on book 2 which is due to be published next fall.

When not writing songs or novels or playing music, Jim runs a web design company called Slabmedia, creates code, teaches meditation, and sometimes even gets a little rest.
